Plasma Man (プラズマおやじ?) is a recurrent character in the Ganbare Goemon series. He acts as a fortune teller in the games he appears in, and gives the heroes insight on where to go next. He is well known for yelling "PLASMA!" every time he performs this feat.
In this game, Plasma Man makes his debut acting as the fortune teller. By paying him 10 ryo, he tells hints to help the player know where to go next. After the island of Kyushu flies into space, he instructs the group to set out north to Mount Fear to find a way to Kyushu.
In the American and PAL release, Plasma Man's skin color was changed to a darker tone.
Plasma Man returns once again as the fortune teller of the game, although this time the group does not have to pay a fee to get a fortune telling. He gives useful hints that help the player find the passes scattered through the levels.
Plasma Man makes a cameo in the first board of the game. He wears a red costume instead of the usual blue one.
